    Things have been a little tense here at Colorado Ski Country USA lately. We’re all on pins and needles waiting to get the call that one of our resorts is going to open. We’re busy planning for the big event but have no idea when it will be. It’s like planning your own surprise party without knowing when the surprise is. But if history tells us anything about opening day, we know this, that in Colorado, the race to open is exciting, fun and addicting,  just like skiing here.

    A 5th Grade Skier’s Rite of Passage – As if being in 5th grade isn’t cool enough already, with the Colorado Ski Country USA 5th Grade Passport, it’s the bees knees, just ask Amanda.

  • Get Your Tickets to Ride

    on September 10 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    Get Your Ticket to Ride – If you want to ski at a resort this winter, you gotta have a pass. Resorts these days are offering so many different kinds of passes that there sure to be one that fits your exact riding needs. Each year it seems like there is a trend in ski passes. For example college passes were booming for a while there. Flexible payments were big last year. This year it’s the season of reciprocation. So many mountain passes allow access to so many other mountains, pretty soon there will be one pass for all – oh wait, that’s the Colorado Gold Pass.

    A Labor Day Full of Winter Love – Though temperatures are still hovering in the 80′s, Labor Day weekend marks the beginning of winter for die-hard skiers on the front range as it brings the annual ski sales at many of Denver’s sports and ski stores. Accordingly, several of Colorado Ski Country’s 22 member resorts will be bringing season pass and lift ticket deals to ski and snowboard sales events happening on the Front Range this weekend. But just like on a powder day, get there early to reap the rewards.

  • Is This Chair Taken?

    on August 10 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    Is This Chair Taken? - It started out as a way to get rid of old chairs and turned into an All-American Backyard BBQ. This summer, Arapahoe Basin is replacing the beloved Exhibition chairlift with the new Black Mountain lift. What do ski resorts do with old chairlift chairs? Auction them off to the highest bidder. In this case, A-Basin decided to use the chairs to support a good cause and has partnered with the High Country Conservation Center as beneficiaries of the auction. The live auction will be August 28th at the resort base area.

  • Gems are a Girl’s Best Friend

    on August 5 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    Gems are a Girl’s Best Friend – It’s no secret that girls love diamonds. And girls in Colorado also love powder. That’s why I like skiing at Colorado Ski Country USA Gem Resorts. There are nine resorts in Ski Country referred to as the Colorado Gems. They are found off the beaten path, have fewer crowds, less wait time, and therefore, offer more skiing. They also offer great programs, some especially for women. With a Colorado Gems Card and programs like these, ladies can ski the bling and play in the pow all winter. Below is a snapshot of the Colorado Gems Resorts and some of the specialized programs they offer their guests. (Programs may change).

Mountain towns and resorts are offering festivities like parades and fireworks, while some are offering activities outside the fire cracker box.
